1,275: THE WAREHOUSE HALLOWEEN VARIETY HAPPYTIME POWER HOUR!
Halloween is here! To celebrate, we've scoured YouTube for a selection of seasonal sensations! Classic horror clips, spooky products, music and merriment are here for your viewing pleasure.
First up, a classic scene from 1941's The Wolf Man, which sets up much of the werewolf film mythology that followed. Gypsy fortune teller Maleva (Maria Ouspenskaya) lets wolf bite victim Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr) know the hairy situation he's facing.
From 1933, Claude Rains gives the police an eyeful...or not...from The Invisible Man. 75 years on, the special effects still impress, as does Rains' wicked laugh.
Need inspiration for your look for that swingin' London/late 1960s theme party? Check out Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger and the Trinity! From 1968, a nifty performance of This Wheel's on Fire on Top of the Pops where the vocals definitely don't appear to be mimed.
And now, a word from our sponsors...
From 1965 comes a daring new concept - "the world's first monster musical!" Are you ready for The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies?
Three years later, zombies were taken more seriously, thanks to a low-budget film from Pittsburgh.
Need more costume suggestions? How about KISS? Our handy make-up kit will bring out your inner demon, starchild, spaceman or cat!
Ladies and gentlemen, it's time for our special guest. Here with a salute to the hit parade of May 1957, with the able assistance from Art Carney, Dinah Shore and Betty Hutton, give a ghoulish welcome to Mr. Boris Karloff!
And now, a final word from our sponsors.
